And done.

I had an idea.  The idea was to learn a new lace pattern.  While learning the new lace pattern, I had an idea of making a curtain for my new house using the lace pattern.  Actually, the idea for the curtain came after I had ripped out and restarted the lace shawl I was making with lace weight merino about 8 times and the wool was frayed beyond use.  Cotton is much better for such an exercise and it's what I wanted to use for the curtain.  Necessity, invention.  So I had an idea.

Here's how it turned out and I could not be more happy with the results.  And I learned how to do the pattern so when I start back on the black merino lace weight (I did mention it was black, didn't I?), I'll make much better progress.
